About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Going out of the house wearing thongs.

ABOUT ME

Guillaume:
I live two lives at the same time right now. First is writing a sociology master's thesis and second is working for the students recruiting bureau of my University). Love meeting new friends, watching tv shows (on dvd) and talking about my city. French as a first language, English is more than okay to get a conversation going.

Martin
I am a litterature student who is starting to get to know the world by others means, meeting and traveling. Altough I'm currently beginning to bury myself in books so deep, I'll forget there is a world out there soon, be sure to dig me out. Do watch out for post-nap crankyness.

PHILOSOPHY

« We do this with no capital except our valuable time. We do this because the world we live in is a house on fire and the people we love are burning». Sandra Cisneros

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We have a nice room to accomodate friendly people who want to discover Montreal.
We do travel a bit, not always by Couchsurfing, depending on the mood.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We hosted many travellers last summer, including people from Ontario, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, etc.
We were hosted for the first time in Paris during May of this year, and then in many other cities throughout France, by as many wonderful people.

Interests

Guillaume
Just about anything and its neighbour. (Except Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, yeah I'm that kind of person.)
Martin
Pour two cups of a bookworm, one of a geekness, a tablespoon of Fashionista, a whole bag of cultural curiosity and a bit of a general as well. Stir and put in the oven at 350° for the length of the stay.
